The category 3 Tropical Storm MOLAVE is forecast to reach the central coast of Vietnam in the early morning of 28 October, with sustained winds up to 120 km/h and then heading to Lao PDR in the evening. According to GDACS, Tropical Cyclone MOLAVE can have a high humanitarian impact based on the maximum sustained wind speed, exposed population, and vulnerability.
